Lewis and Clark Trail on the Air

CLARKSVILLE, IN (May 31, 2024) – This Saturday, CCARC—Indiana will kick off the LCTOTA event with an activation of the Falls of the Ohio State Park in Clarksville, Indiana. However, this year, we will be at the George Rogers Clark Cabin location (1021 Harrison Ave, Clarksville, IN), not at the interpretive center.

The Lewis and Clark Trail on the Air special event is an on-air activity that commemorates the historic Lewis and Clark Trail. The trail covers 4900 miles through 16 states.
